Volunteer with the Methow Conservancy!

The Methow Conservancy began as a volunteer organization and to this day supporters who donate their time and skills are essential to our conservation and education efforts!

Our volunteer projects are updated regularly on our page on Volunteer Methow.  Browse tasks and register there, or contact us anytime.

The Featured Activity this month is:
Harvesting Community: A Happy Hour Celebrating Agriculture & Conservation in the Methow
Sunday, February 18th

On Feb 18th (and the week before), we need lots of helpers to make this holiday weekend happy hour and mini film-festival fun and eventful.  From distributing posters and postcards around the Valley prior to the event, to day-of help with chairs, kitchen/food prep, bartending, even assistance with some online/technology aspects. 

See all the jobs and times here, and sign up there, or contact us directly.

Coming up in March & April:  Mark your calendars for the bluebird box installation work party on March 17, and an Amphibian Survey Training on April 8th.  These are both great field projects where you have the opportunity to learn and do some valuable conservation and science work. 

To sign-up for anything listed, please use the “Volunteer Methow” link provided for each item.  If you have any trouble, or to simply be included in volunteer update emails (sent about once a month), contact Mary at mary@methowconservancy.org or 509-996-2870.

Ongoing, our primary volunteer opportunities fall into the following categories:

Weeds & Native Plants table at the Farmer's Market.

Education: Love to teach and interact with people?  Assist with our 4th grade “schoolyard science” during the school year; help with our noxious weed booth at the Farmers’ Market; co-lead free flower, bird or weed walks in the spring; public events and more!

Field Work: Want to be outside and get dirty?  Restoration and stewardship activities fill our spring-fall schedule – join us to improve habitat on conservation easements and public land!  Pull barbed wire and weeds, collect native seeds and plant trees; maintain the small public garden next to our office, and much more!  We’ll hold regular work parties April-Oct!

Odds & Ends: all the other office stuff that we always need help with: posting posters; prepare mailings; graphic design, create a new display about our work, filing and archiving; writing, editing and proofreading (we are about to revise and reprint our Good Neighbor Handbook!); we’ve got it all and much of it can be done at home!

ALSO, we welcome high school students for summer internships, community service work anytime or senior projects.
